Fall vegetables

Such a lovely sense of renewal comes with new seeding; fall greens are the promise, hopefully, of seeds sown now.

This weekend, I'm definitely planting lettuce, spinach, arugula, beets, chard, kale and collards in all of the beds not allocated to garlic!

I'll plant garlic from my own harvested heads for the first time this year.  I've put aside the largest heads (and so the largest cloves) to separate and plant out in late September/early October. Yum....

  1. That's a helpful reminder Lisa. We've had a great year for garlic and should consider reusing cloves we've grown ourselves. Rob

  2. Rob, I was about to order garlic heads from my favorite supplier and suddenly thought, hey, shouldn't I just replant the cloves from the biggest heads, since I'd had such an excellent garlic year too.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
